Looks like Presti has found another gem in the draft.

Been tryna tell people he will turn out great. Maybe not all star great but a good starting center who can anchor the defense, run the floor and finish at the rim. He can pass surprisingly well too.

He needs to model his game on Tyson Chandler and Joakim Noah. That will keep him in the league for ten years.

Man if this guy pans out for OKC.. looking good so far, though obviously just preseason. Looking forward to seeing how he develops.

Where those weak ass niqqas at like Bill Simmons criticizing that Harden trade.

We swapped a 6th man for a potential 6th man in Lamb, a starting center in Adams, and we still have the Mavs pick that is protected until 2016.

And since the Mavs will sux until then basically OKC gonna get a high lottery pick in 2016 :lol

Sam Presti is GOAT

Still gotta admit that they could've done much better.

We tried trading Harden to Wizards for Beal, they declined.

We tried trading him to Warriors for Klay Thompson I believe. They declined.

People forget that Harden wasn't some big star in OKC. He was a 6th man coming in and dominating 2nd units, often in garbage time. Plus him shitting the bed in the Finals didn't help his trade value either.

Had we kept him till the ASB shit would have hit the fan and his value would have lowered even more plus our chemistry would have went to shit for trading him midseason for shitty compensation

Sorry, Harden was nothing more than a 6th man for us. He was stealing possesions from KD/Russ/Ibaka as it was and all of those guys have gotten better since then.

Not Presti's fault he drafted too much talent all at once.

I do alright in fantasy basketball and I've taken a risk on him in a few of my leagues..:rockon:

I just hope the coach doesn't fck this one. Adams NEEDS to be getting the lion share of minutes, he is much better than Perk.

What could Perkins possibly mentor Adams with? He is literally better at nothing on the basketball court.

Except maybe pulling angry faces :lol

Re: Steven Adams
 
Brooks will play Perkins ahead of Adams..because Adams is a rookie. Perkins is the veteran. He should play ahead of a rookie. I bet that's Brooks thinking. :lol Perkins can mentor Adams in the ways of the NBA.
